Fannin Partners, LLC, doing business as Fannin Innovation Studio invests in early-stage medical technology companies. Usefully understood as an early-stage life sciences development group focused exclusively on commercializing medical technologies, Fannin in-licenses assets or technologies from academic institutions and develops them internally through clinical proof of concept. An experienced team - having diverse business backgrounds, commercialization experience, and strong entrepreneurial knowhow -- actively manages the product development, while collaborating actively with academic founders on writing grant applications and advancing the science. Nont inconsequentilly, Fannins apprenticeship programs are helping create the next generation of biotech CEOs through their internship (part-time) and fellowship (full-time) programs providing early career professionals from top-tier, higher education institutions with the opportunity to gain hands on experience with drug and device development. These programs have grown to become among the largest of their kind and are helping address the root cause of Houstons commercialization gap. Currently resident in the JLab Houston facility, Fannin partners with life science innovators to co-found startup companies and provides a pooled management team, funding, and administrative support. Further to bridge the commercialization gap, Fannins internship and fellowship programs provide aspiring entrepreneurs with hands-on development experience with its portfolio companies.
